ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — UPDATE: Rockford Police said that a 20-year-old male victim is “currently in stable condition” following a shooting Tuesday morning at Marathon gas station, 3299 S. Alpine Road.

Multiple spent shell casings were recovered at the scene.

Police have asked motorists to avoid the area.

“By no means do we believe this is a random act of violence. So, I will say that the public at large, for the most part, they’re safe,” said Rockford Police Chief Carla Redd. “These are individuals who seemingly find themselves attracted to criminal activity and, doing this job for almost 25 years, the violence comes with that criminal activity.”

The 24-hour gas station is located near the intersection of Sandy Hollow Road.

No details on any suspects involved at this time
